New Balance Changes

  • According to Nintendo Direct of 4-8-2014:
    • Samus and Zelda can not longer change characters.
    • Kirby and Pit's Final Smashes have been changed.
    • Kirby's side special can now be charged and Kirby could move, like King Dedede's Jet Hammer (it was also a beta element in Brawl).
    • Villager's Final Smash includes building a house.
    • Mega Man's Final Smash includes the other incarnations of Mega Man.
    • Rosalina's Final Smash includes a Power Star.
    • Olimar can only have 3 Pikmin and has a new Up Special.
    • There are now customized special moves.
    • Yoshi now stands upright, like Bowser.
    • Yoshi's back aerial now has a finishing move.
    • Charizard, Sheik, and Zero Suit Samus are now stand-alone characters.
    • Lucario and Charizard can now Mega Evolve.
    • Yoshi's Egg Toss now has a rainbow stream.
    • Lucario's Aura have been buffed.
    • King Dedede only throws Gordos now. 




Veteran Fighters





  • After Marth's confirmation, it was thought that the veteran fighters, newcomers, and confirmed characters would be all of the playable characters in the game.
  • Similar to Brawl, Yoshi was the last of the "original 8" to be confirmed (due to the April 8th Nintendo Direct).
  • King Dedede was the first character to be confirmed in 2014.
    • Some well known veterans whose statuses are deconfirmed as of now are Snake, Pokémon Trainer, Ice Climbers, Wolf, Lucas, Ivysaur and Squirtle.
    • However, the Pokémon Trainer, Ice Climbers, Wolf, Lucas, Ivysaur and Squirtle have trophies in the 3DS version. Snake is the only one that doesn't have a trophy.
  • Sonic is so far the only veteran fighter that has a trailer that is not posted on the official website.
  • The Ice Climbers were cut late in development due to a combination of badly outdated Smash-data and performance issues with the 3DS when playing with multiple Ice Climbers at once. No word if Ice Climbers will come back for the Wii U version or the new 3DS version of Smash. Sakurai also said that the Ice Climbers were working perfectly in the Wii U version.
    • Despite them being cut, their cheer from Brawl has been heard through a glitch. To hear it, you have to play as Villager (at 100% or more) against three Dr. Marios. KO-ing two Dr. Marios will activate the glitch.
